Sassi Holford designs and makes classic, English wedding gowns with a contemporary edge. Exquisite lines and sumptuous fabrics echo the bride's own style, and nothing is spared in the structure and the detail to provide the renowned Sassi Holford cut and fit.
The key to this is the integral corset in every gown that results in a streamlined silhouette and just as important the high level of comfort necessary for the wedding day.
Sassi started making wedding dresses when she left school in 1981, and one of her earliest challenges was to create a replica of Princess Diana's wedding dress overnight.
Within two years her collections were being sold in London bridal boutiques. By the late eighties Sassi was stocking Harrods and Libertys, and had gained numerous, prestigious bridal awards. By the mid nineties her gowns were sold in capital cities across northern Europe.
In 2007 Sassi enjoyed a highly successful debut in New York which has established her in the very challenging North American market.
